We went out this morning for a very cold ride - a bit of snow on the ground as we left with Toni riding Badger and leading Junior - and then up the road met up with Ros and Rags.
After about a mile Toni turned back for home and Ros and I continued on our way - re-tracing an old route to begin with before turning onto another new road. Here we trotted up the hill, past an abandoned house - that still looked in good condition - so it was worth speculating as to whether it was Miss Haversham's country home.
At the top of the hill there was a car waiting by a passing place - so Ros and Rags passed. When it was our turn DJ decided it was time to stop to leave a "parcel" - well the call of nature was obviously upon him. Well, just as he lifted his tail the car started moving - fine, except for the fact that his droppings landed in a puddle - thus splashing him ... At which point he panicked and launched up the road!! WHAT A TWIT!!
The rest of the ride was fairly OK - although he kept looking around to see what else was going to attack him!!
Poor Boy - Maybe the cold had frozen his brain, as much as it did my toes!
